About the Ride:
Keep McAllen Beautiful and the City of McAllen invite you to participate in the Arbor Day Celebration Coming March 2, 2019
START YOUR TRAINING and come help us celebrate our 8th Anniversary! Walk, Run, and Ride with us as we celebrate Arbor Day in our City and our region!
The Arbor Day Celebration Committee will be furiously planning for the 2019 event which promises to once again offer a closed course for all runners and SAG vehicles and law enforcement support for our cyclists. Arbor Day will bring you an exciting family-friendly event that will play an important role in “planting” the future for trees in our city.
On March 2, 2019, Keep McAllen Beautiful will host the 8th annual Arbor Day Celebration. The Arbor Day Celebration, is an event where you can run a timed 5K or 10K, do a 25 mile or 50 mile bike tour or a Kids 1 Mile Run. These events all start at McAllen Municipal Park. The 25 mile and 50 mile bike tour will feature an escort and SAG vehicle. This year will feature healthful vendors and even more fun activities for the kids. We invite you to come out and participate with the rest of your community! Get active, celebrate trees, and enjoy the beautiful RGV spring weather!
Arbor Day is a day when we celebrate nature’s gift of trees, the tall providers of shade, fruit, fun, and a habitat for many different kinds of wildlife. This Arbor Day, come out and make a difference by helping us continue to establish a dedicated tree-planting fund with the money raised at this event, and by planting some trees yourself! Together, we are making our city greener, cooler, and more beautiful.
